With MarineWeek in town, the pre-beatdown discussion circled around all the cool vehicles downtown and the Stonewall relocation on Saturday so F3 can show the Marine’s what it’s all about.  As the watch flipped to 0530, the PAX were off…

The Thang:

The PAX began the mosey around the south side of the Parthenon lawn and went through a progression of mosey, reverse mosey, left crossover mosey, right crossover mosey, high skip mosey, butt kickers, high knees and back to a regular mosey finishing on the east side of the Parthenon for a continued warm up.

  • SSH x15, IW x15 -> HB x15, WMH x15, MtnClimbers x15, x10 BAC F -> R -> BB -> APs

Is that a sad clown over there? YHC gave it his best flying EH only to be alerted by PA that he is just and early rising Army ROTC. He didn’t want any bit of what we were offering anyway. Exercise 1 of 2: 11s with Burpee Double Pushups at the bottom of the steps and Lt. Dan’s at the top of both sets of steps.  Huffing and puffing ensued along with about a gallon of sweat but no mumble chatter, too much H & P I guess.

Mosey over to the playground for Exercise 2 of 2: 9 PAX split into 3 groups of 3 perfectly, time for a little ménage… round 1 – rotate through 15 pull-ups, 15 rows & 15 swerkins; round 2 – 10 pull-ups, 10 rows & 10 swerkins; round 3 – 5 pull-ups, 5 rows & 5 swerkins.

Head over to the Monument for Mary and COT: 50 LBCs followed by 25 flutter kicks.  Wait, what’s that Graffiti? You called out 25 American Hammers so let’s finish up with 25 AHs.
